While many of us here in Bowling Green did our “happy dance” when it snowed yesterday, those in the northeast have been bracing the harsh impacts of a blizzard. Southern New England – from Long Island to Massachusetts – has taken the biggest beating from the blizzard, with two feet of snow and counting. As of this morning, Massachusetts had picked up the highest snow totals, with Shrewsbury leading the pack at 26.2 inches of snow.

Massachusetts is not only being impacted by the snow, but coastal flooding has caused flooding of streets and homes, as well as power outages throughout the eastern part of the state.
